Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ) / Gemstone Appraisals

Do you provide appraisals of the gems you sell?

It is not ethical for a gem dealer to make appraisals of the gems he sells. Appraisals should only be made by independent third parties, particularly those with certified appraisal credentials. Please keep in mind that the appraisal industry is not regulated, and many appraisals done for insurance purposes tend to be inflated. For more information see our article on gemstone appraisals.

Size and Weight

Gems are always measured in Millimeter (mm)

Dimensions are given as;
length x width x depth,
except for round stones which are;
diameter x depth

Select gems by size, not by weight!
Gem varieties vary in density, so carat weight is not a good indication of size

Note: 1ct = 0.2g
